It is hard not to think of winter which is fast approaching. I live in a cool climate so winter is usually quite cold and pretty gloomy where I Live. I go to work in the dark and come home in the dark so it is indoor only activities except for weekends.
Look what arrived last week to add to my stitching basket each month - The first month of "Chick Jubilee" designed by Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill Designs. The Tuesday night sewing girls are all doing it too so it will be fun to watch each other's progress each month. I am sure that we will keep each other motivated for the entire 9 months.
I have been trying to decide how to re-structure and re-decorate our home - I thought that I would begin during the colder months when I can't do things outside. So I have begun to move around some of my treasured pieces so that they are on display in the room that we use the most.
Our home is pine lined and I am working up the courage to paint the whole lot - To change it from the raw timber to a painted surface. Am I mad?
Hmmm I'm still trying to decide ....... I have lots of pictures of similar homes to ponder over.
On a recent trip to the city I parked outside this shop on a trip to Spotlight and decided to go in for a bit of a look see.
It is a lovely yarn shop and I immediately fell in love with this adorable cotton yarn. I have no idea what I will make from it as I do not know how to crochet. BUT I am willing to learn so this will be another of my "Winter" projects.
What about you - Do you have much planned for the winter?
